hmmm, Ok, well, I had put some 1 1/2" flat strap along the bottom, so it wouldn't be that hard to fabricate some outriggers or just add some strap vertically to add some rigidity.....

FINALLY! some progress on the EFI harness. After a month of trying to get a hold of RJM since I purchased, I was doing a search on the RJM harness here today and I saw a post for Quality Automotive Specialties I sent them an email asking if they had the harness in stock. They did. So I purchased it, and an Alternator harness and it was cheaper than going straight to RJM. It is shipping out this week. I then emailed RJM and cancelled the order there. Personally, from what I have read, RJM builds a top notch harness, but the guy has a full time job and does this on the side. So that explains the poor communication Ive seen and that has been noted everywhere. Hopefully I can start the car next weekend. Man I'm stoked. So I gotta get busy and finish up all the other preliminary stuff.

OK... Here is what I learned today. I went to pick n pull. They had about 30 contours there a handfull of mystiques and I didnt see any Cougars. I found about 6 double fans. The older contours are a LOT easier to remove the fans. But you need to find one of the NEWER contours. If not, the wires will all be toast. I pulled one fan before I realized the wires were cooked by all the connections. Then I started checking all of them, and same problem. Then I found a 99 contour. Wires were in perfect condition, BUT you have to remove the fan from the bottom. There is no way to get it out through the top, just not enough space. But, I now have my fan and the complete harness. I need to strip it down and see what does what. May need to look into that controller that Chuck mentioned. Also, they want $54 for the fan with no warranty and $68 with. I rolled the dice since the harness on this one was in good shape.

I also tried to have the hoses made up for the power steering. That was going to be about $105 so I'm looking at some other alternatives there.

Yup, in 99 they changed the harnesses. My 98 SVT Contour had bare wire 1/2" up on EVERY connector under the hood.

Hey Txtrailerdaddy, I'm wondering which shorty headers you finally went with? Did you send the first set back and go with the Summit brand? I saw your pic of them... how do they fit in the engine bay?

Thanks,

I went with the hedman headers. They fit great even with the borgeson. I sent the summit brand back. I don't remember the exact model number but I think I posted it a few pages back. I dropped mine in from the top but you gotta find just the right angle and it falls in. You need to use hex drive header bolts cause there's no way to get a socket on the lower bolts.

Thanks for the reply! I ordered a set of the Hedmans last night. They're PN 88408, like you listed earlier in your post. Hopefully I can get an open-end wrench on the bolts; otherwise, I'll get a set of hex like you mentioned.

You can't even get a socket on regular bolts. Gotta get the Allen wrench type with the round head.

Here is the wiring for the Taurus fan. Hopefully it will be similar for your Contour fan:

wiring: Black is common (ground), Brown/Orange is low speed, Dark Blue is high speed.

Instead of high and low speed, you will have Fan1 and Fan2.

Congrats on the fan. If I can't get my 94 Water Pump and Timing Cover idea to work, I will probably need to swap out to a Fox pump, thus requiring me to ditch the Taurus fan and grab a Contour fan. Thanks for identifying that the wiring on the older ones had a fatal design flaw and indicating how to get both styles out.

Chuck

Man great progress! I was hoping to do this on my 67 also. but a injury threw a wrench into to those plans! would you be intrested in selling me a few parts off your old 289? I need the gas pedal the "s" linkage, with the rod going to the carb, and the kick down cable going to the trans. maybe even the gear selector shaft out of the c4 if your willing to pull it. basicly everything you just pulled to change the pedal to the cabel type. I have no kick down at the moment! Im on a budget but willing to pay a fair price or trade parts to help with your build! Good luck I cant wait to see this up and running with efi!

I sold the 289 to a guy from my church, who saw what I was doing and bought a 66 mustang. I may have the pedal avail, but not the kickdown as he is using that on his. just PM me with what you're needing and I'll look through what I got left.

I need to get back to work on it. I'm so close I can taste it. I need to finish the wiring harness, run the fuel lines and HP fuel pump, spark plug wires and power steering lines, and I should be able to fire it.

Good luck!

After reading this thread from page 1 on, how's the project going? I'm starting this swap myself so I am reading this every carefully. I'm in the process of rebuilding the engine and trans, also gathering parts and figuring out what I need to get/do.
